I can get you a badge Marlon. Would like to be a FBI Special Agent , a US Marshall, TSA Screener, or a member of the White House Press Corp.

Maybe a US Park Ranger or CNO???

I'm sticking with my guess of the Maserati Levante.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Maserati Levante... no, because it is no longer based on the WK/WD.

They're basing it on something else... and building it in Italy.

Maserati customers didn't want something built in the USA.

Unless you work for Jeep, you can go public with any guess you want. If Jeep wants to make it public, the folks you are asking to confirm it for you, can just go ahead and tell the rest of us.

Boooo. Too bad, they don't know what they are missing out on.

I hope it isnt the same thing I saw last night at work. "Different" is an understatement if it is.

*will* = Willx = tech savvy
*different* = front/rear differentials
"badge" = Trail Rated; and "taking away (a) badge" = no more Trail Rated.
So newbie ride coming down the line uses fancy electronics to compensate for a new differential set up which will equate to a WK/WD platformed vehicle that can't go off road. What a shame. Thanks for letting us know, Marlon.

Speaking of "banned", I'm not sure if it's still offered here anymore, but when I first joined JG I signed up for the Anti-ban forum insurance policy, if I remember it was only 10 bucks or so and it gave me lifetime immunity from being banned on the site.

Same thing with all the other electronic nannies.

Ever spun a car with ABS? Its no fun. Its unpredictable. W/o ABS you brake hard or lock them up at the same time you shift into neutral or push in the clutch. You then come to a safe predictable stop if you know what you are doing.

In snow especially deep snow I dont want ABS since my stopping distance will be longer and I dont want stability control or any other nannies since there maybe a time when I want the vehicle to rotate or drift. There are times when taking an exit ramp in in a nice 4 wheel drift is the safest option in the snow

Can you still spin a vehicle with all the electronic nannies? Yes you can and the biggest problem is it happens at a higher speed than w/o them and you reaction times are next to nothing.

So get off the phone, stop texting and learn to drive. Most posters here and most drivers dont have a clue about car control.
I agree with you 100%. I learned to drive back east in the winter and took my drivers licence test in 6" of new snow. I knew what a car would do in snow and had a feel for what was happening under my butt!
